George Mitchell School

20th April 2017

Dear Parents / Carers

CLASSES CANCELLED TUESDAY 25TH APRIL

We have been informed by George Mitchell School that a planned teachers strike will be taking place next Tuesday 25th April, this together with limited access to the school due to road closures in the area means that regrettably WFDA has to cancel next Tuesdays classes.  We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause but it is unavoidable.  This makes it a 4 week term, with classes resuming on Tuesday 2nd May.

Our class fees are due on 2nd May:-
·        4 weeks at £14 (literacy / numeracy) = £56
·        4 weeks at £6 (touch typing) = £24
·        4 weeks at £18 (literacy / numeracy and touch typing) = £72

The invoices have been sent by email, please let me know if you would still like a paper version.  Please make every effort to pay your half termly fees by Tuesday 2nd May, cash/ cheque or ask us for the details to pay on-line or by Paypal. Invoices will be adjusted next term for those of you who already paid for a 5 week term.
